Prior to relocating to Washburn and then Bismarck, North Dakota, he spent his formative years on his grandparents’ farm close to Lake Audubon. Jeremy graduated from Bismarck State College with a certificate in heating and cooling. He had always taken pleasure in bowling, fishing, and hunting. He started a yardwork business as a young man, and in 1996 he was given the title Young Business Entrepreneur. Jeremy founded Bismarck Landscaping and Services in 2003, specializing in fences, retaining walls, and hydroseeding.

He enjoyed giving tours of his personal nursery and gardening. On November 12, 1998, Jeremy’s longtime girlfriend Tanya Tischer turned 21. He proposed to her on her 22nd birthday, and on September 16, 2000, they were wed. They had two kids: a son named Bryce and a girl named Brianna. Work seasons in the spring and summer included a holiday for the family and July 4th fireworks displays. In the fall, he enjoyed watching football games at NDSU and Century High as well as going hunting with his kids in his built blind west of Hazelton.

The winters were spent ice fishing by Stuart, his partner, friends, and family. He enjoyed smoking brisket, cooking his famous knoephla soup, making sausage, jerky, and bacon, baking countless desserts, and making sure there were always huge cookies and hamburger doughy things (fleischkuechle) in the freezer.
